They kept in the provision that allows people from out of state to buy, but out-of-staters can only buy half as much at a time. That's my understanding at least. This is going to make things really weird here in my bi-state metro area. Iowa has some of the harshest weed laws in the country. I'm wondering if cops are just going to set up a sting on the bridges if they want to get in on some of that weed revenue. I guarantee they will make certain people (most likely racially profiled brown people) pay a steep price here in the beginning. That's my fear at least.

If you want to grow a few plants at home, though, I think I read that the penalty for getting caught was like a $200 non-criminal citation. Not something I would worry about if I wanted to try it.

Good to know.

If you have a medical prescription for it I think you can still grow at home.

I believe that’s been the story from states bordering Colorado.

With the possibile exception of i-25 north, Colorado borders are pretty rural, so this seems harder. Is it like rural jurisdictions running something like speed traps searching cars or something?

My experience is extremely anecdotal, but I haven't seen anything out of the ordinary in any border crossings in Washington, California (weirder than usual), Nevada, or Colorado. The Idaho-Washington border on I-90 was one I specifically was on the lookout for because Idaho is definitely not weed friendly and their cops are extremely, shall we say, aggressive, but I didn't see anything that looked like they were targeting people on their way back from dispensaries.

Thought I’d seen a story or two over the years about sheriffs in bordering counties making stops.

Anecdotally, my ‘veep of a highly respected Co dispensary’ source says he’s not concerned with flying home with weed but would not drive- fed vs local.

I'm confused. Flying involves being searched by Federal authorities. And isn't any state border crossing potentially federal regardless of mode of transportation?

Did you mean to say the reverse i.e. driving stops are probably state charges?
